About PM Antiques & Collectables

Introducing PM Antiques & Collectables, a modern and innovative retailer specialising in decorative interiors and one-of-a-kind memorabilia. Founded by Phil Mires in 2015, the business quickly grew from a small turnover to one-to-watch within the market and a noted leader for online purchasing.

With a modern emphasis and approach to our work we ensure our stock is easily accessible online through various digital channels and platforms. Our customers therefore are not confined to high street shopping hours and can browse our collection at their own pace and leisure. As a business, we are equally passionate about both the antiques industry and technology. Our goal being to seamlessly merge both together, ensuring we move with the times, keeping abreast of new ways to engage with customers and promote our products and services.

PM Antiques specialises and are home to a wide array of collectors items, including contemporary art, entertainment & memorabilia, film posters, vintage toys, decorative ceramics, glassware, watches and automobilia. We ensure that we keep our finger on the pulse of movements and trends in the antiques world, and react by continuously replenishing our store with unique and desirable items sourced from around the UK.

Despite being relatively small in stature compared to some household names, we’ve proven to be an emerging business in this market with some of our recent acquisitions. Our inventory features prominent artists and designers including the likes of L.S. Lowry, Pablo Picasso, Archibald Thorburn, Salvador Dali, René Lalique, Lucie Rie, Joan Miro, Sherree Valentine-Daines, Fabian Perez and Charles & Ray Eames to name but a few.

PM Antiques are active members of Surrey Hills Enterprises, part of a growing community supporting the Surrey Hills and surrounding area and helping to preserve our heritage for future generations.

About the Founder

Phil Mires

A passion for antiques and collectables is something that has been instilled in Phil from a young age. Upon leaving college, Phil immersed himself in the antiques world, gaining valuable knowledge and tutelage volunteering with a local auctioneer where his passion and interest for the trade only grew stronger. It was finding a niche in the market that led Phil to establish PM Antiques & Collectables a year later aged 19.

Though antiques and collectables generally relate to items past or dated, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the antiques trade should be and Phil’s focus is not only to modernise the industry but to deliver an exceptional buying or selling experience for the customer.

“At PM Antiques & Collectables, I aim to make it easy to find the piece you need. Whether you’re a Collector enhancing your collection, or an Interior Designer searching on behalf of a client, I want to help you achieve that satisfying feeling of finding the right item for you.

My passion is for connecting people to the pieces they want. The pieces they need. I scour the antiques trade to find the very best in contemporary art, decorative interiors, memorabilia, film posters, vintage toys, luxury watches and automobilia. So that Collectors and Interior Designers, as well as anyone looking for a piece to brighten up their home, can view my collection and find the right piece for them.

And if you don’t? Then brief me to search for the item you’re looking for. I don’t give up easily, so I’m a useful man to have hunting on your behalf!

My passion is grounded in my expertise in the antiques industry and my desire to connect antiques with the modern world. I am often told that I have an eye for something special – which I love to use to enhance my collection, in order to help you find the piece that’s just right for you.”

Testimonials

What our clients say

I was very pleased to have dealt with PM Antiques & Collectables this week, when selling some collectable items. I would most definitely use them again, and can recommend them most highly. Covid compliant at all times, professional, pleasant and caring. Their customer service was excellent all round. It is always a challenge to sell ones treasured belongings, but they offered me good financial value, and completely took the stress out the situation. Many thanks Phil. – LorraineY-11

Quite by chance I saw a sporting painting which happened to show my father and myself. Late at night I was in communication with Phil Mires about the painting. He could not have been more helpful in giving me all the information I needed. Before the night was through the deal was concluded and 2 days later, on Christmas Eve afternoon, the picture was delivered. Phil was so efficient throughout and I have no hesitation in giving him 5 stars! – Jillian Reeve

We discovered PM Antiques & Collectables during an internet search for paintings by an artist we admire. We sent emails requesting more information and despite it being Saturday evening, received instant replies from the owner Phil Mires including more photographs. Just three days later, the painting arrived very carefully packaged and is now hanging at home. We are delighted with our purchase. Great value and in excellent condition. Based on our experience of service and value, we would not hesitate to recommend PM Antiques. – Barry Fulton

Great communication. Delivered promptly in perfect condition. Very satisfied with the Ruskin vase I bought and the service provided. Thank you. – D Stansfield

I have bought 4 paintings from PM Antiques and am over the moon with all of them, Phil answered any queries I had straight away and the items were delivered on the day that was allocated. – Jacqui Waterman

Phil was really helpful – lots of good advice, prompt communications and collection was great. Would definitely buy from again. – Michael Clark

I discovered Phil Mires and PM Antiques and Collectables after a lot of internet searching to try and find if there was any value in certain items belonging to my elderly mother, now in a care home. My initial approach was answered promptly, courteously and efficiently, togther with an offer which I felt to be a very good one. Our subesquent discussions revealed there were some other items that would also interest Phil, and for which an offer was also made. Phil’s terms were that payment would be made immediately on receipt of the goods, could be directly into a designated bank account if so desired, and indeed this is exactly what happened. I can only describe Phil as thoroughly professional, and have no hesitation in recommending him. – Richard L
